Youth Outdoor Activity Day – Bill A. – Reviewed the assignments and volunteers. Bill said we have about 10 – 12 repeat candidates. They will be replaced by the waiting list and their fees returned.

MOTION by Curtis P. that the LDFGA Indoor Range allows for a guest to have 3 passes in one calendar year. After that the member ceases to be a guest and must purchase an indoor range membership to continue shooting. A guest is defined as a member in good standing of the LDFGA. Without this membership you are not allowed to enter in the indoor range. Out of community guests must present a provincial fish and game or wildlife federation membership with applicable insurance. (RSO will stamp the LDFGA membership card each time that guest shoots.) (Pistol club member that is sponsoring the guest will be responsible for all actions of that guest.) (Existing range sign in procedure must be adhered to.) (Guest can be a member of another fish and game constituency.) Seconded by Jeff F., carried.
MOTION by Curtis P. to adopt the indoor range safety producers and range safety rules as presented, seconded by Jeff F., carried.

Dwayne D. mentioned the small party that occurred in front of the indoor range. Brett B. made sure the fire was out and Reid B. cleaned up the slight mess. There was concern that this could happen again. Asked neighbours to phone executive if they see anything going on.
Outdoor Range – Cameras are all working and the backstop system works pretty well. 25 yard still gets a lot of use and some people insist on posting targets on posts.
